I did it!

Sunday, September 23, 2007

I met my 2nd goal weight to weigh 128 pounds. Woo-hoo! Didn't think I'd ever get here. Now the scary part, maintaining.

Didn't get to go hiking this weekend. Had fun with Jake and dh at the Thomas the Train event. Jake was entranced by the model trains. We had to tear him away to get to our next appointment on time.

I met my sisters for lunch at a healthy restaurant called Blue Sky Cafe. The food was yummy. I had the Mediterranean chicken salad. I'm such a sucker for Greek salads. After lunch we went and saw Good Luck Chuck. Funny in some parts mostly stupid. Oh well. Can't win them all.

I'm on a new challenge for myself. No after dinner snacking for a month. Very tough. That's my biggest downfall.

    Whoo hoo!! Congrats on meeting your goal! When I started to maintain, it was a little scary for me too. I haven't been maintaining that long (3 months? 4?) but once you get over that initial feeling, you will be fine. You've saved up all these good habits, now it's just putting them into practice daily. BTW, you are lucky that you get to go hiking a lot. And thanks for the review on Good Luck Chuck, now I won't have to see it LOL!

    This is so great!
Again, congrats!
Jake must be very proud to have such a strong mom!

Castlewood Canyon

Sunday, September 16, 2007

Met another Sparker to hike Castlewood Canyon just outside of Castlerock, Colorado. What a beautiful hike. I must admit I thought it would be all plains hiking due to it being so far from the mountains but it was a pleasant surprise. We hiked down along the canyon floor to the dam ruins and looped back around to the visitor's center. It was gorgeous. Molly loved it too. She finally won over and yanked the leash out of my hand and dove straight into the creek. Silly dog.

Today was weigh in day and am down .8. Probably would have been more if I hadn't eaten a bag of dark chocolate moose munch. That evening snacking puts me under every time. Oh well! Today is a new day.


No more hot dogs!

Monday, September 10, 2007

I took Jake to the zoo yesterday and regretted the hotdog last night and today. Talk about sick! I can't look at food without feeling yucky. I'm so tired today too. I should have stayed home from work but thought I could do it.

Molly and I did a fun hike on Saturday. We hiked Rattlesnake gulch in Eldorado Canyon. It was pretty....and challenging. I stopped 2-3 times to catch my breath and get my heart back into my chest. But it was worth the climb. I love climbing to spots where historical ruins lay. Also, a well used train track was on another mountain and saw a couple trains go by. Jake would have loved that! It was a pretty day. I started the hike about 9a. No one was there except the rock climbers but once I headed down the trail really picked up with hikers. Molly loved it too.


So Far So Good

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

Last night was the first night w/o the binky. Jake cried a little and kept calling my name. He eventually fell asleep when I turned on the bathroom fan (white noise). I expected him to wake up in the middle of the night howling for it but he didn't. He woke up saying "Daddy's boat" a couple times and then fell back to sleep! I didn't sleep well for fear he would wake up wanting it. This morning he was fine. He did have a howling fit at daycare but he does that every now and then. I took the paci from his daycare box so he can't have it for nap time either. I warned the daycare teachers and they were on board. I think I feel worse about it than Jake. I ended up binging last night on chips stressing and feeling guilty over it! Af finally came so I'm sure that isn't helping either.

Which reminds me...my goal for September is no snacking after dinner! Gotten back into the bad habit of that.


bye bye binky

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

This week while dh is out of town, Jake is going to "lose" his binky. I've gotten him to the point where he only has it in bed. But, when I got him to smile at me recently, I noticed that he couldn't close his front teeth! His molars were touching but the front teeth were not. So, bye, bye binky! It will be a stressful week. But! I rather do it with dh not present as he will not stick with it. I warned daycare that it was coming. Jake may be a cranky butt for the first couple weeks. I haven't taken it away at daycare yet (he only uses it for naps). He has several blankies and a horse that he loves so hoping they will take the place of the binky. Wish me luck!
